At the EXMA - Exhibiting and Moving Arts.

SANTISSIMI – a duo by Sara Renzetti (1978) and Antonello Serra (1977) – are among the most representative artists of Sardinian new generation, widely appreciated on the national and international scene. Through a rigorous selection of works, the exhibition encompasses their artistic research as it has been developing since 2009, when Renzetti and Serra, after their training in Florence and their individual first steps, chose to work together, starting to shape small and large, maniacally detailed silicone sculptures. Their sculptures – the silicone becoming similar to the flesh – represent men, women and children surprised in the moment when life passes to death. So, alongside the exhibition, visitors can find themselves immersed in a fascinating and disturbing experience at the same time, enraptured by the restlessness, but also by the mysterious and extraordinary beauty of human being.

The exhibition confirms the leading role of EXMA as institution devoted to contemporary art, promoting innovative forms of artistic expression and many important reflections on our times.

During the exhibition, an outdoor art installation will be set up on EXMA façade, specifically conceived by SANTISSIMI to interpret the identity and history of the place and to establish an unconventional dialogue with the city of Cagliari.
